WHITHER GO THE Wolverines now?'
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan's stalwarts battle Cornell Saturday
shadowed by precisely the background that haunted them in a 20-7
loss to the Big Red last November.
For the second straight year Michigan has lost to Michigan State
and Stanford, forged into the Conference lead with three straight
wins, and then succumbed to Illinois.
The current question is will the Wolverines complete the car-
bon copy of last season's performance, striking off down the trail
of no return to lose the next two games to Cornell and Purdue?
Or can they locate the tracks of the 1952 eleven who finished in
a blaze of glory to win Big Ten and Rose Bowl titles after tying
Minnesota and losing to Illinois?
Cornell doesn't seem to be much. The Big Red has been about
as potent as a beaver with a toothache in losing five of six starts this
season. After a shutout by Yale, Coach Lefty James was confronted
with a problem that would be amusing if it weren't so tragic: Upon
which should he concentrate practice drills-his passing attack or
his running game? Against Yale the Ithacans had gained something
like three yards passing and five yards rushing.
Cornell Improved.. .
HOWEVER, SINCE THEN Captain Bill Whelan, Cornell's best run-
4ier, has fully recovered from a broken collar bone to add some
sting to James' attack. Also, James may have his crew "up" higher
than a cat's back, as Illinois was last week, and that could mean dif-
ficulty for the Wolverines. The Big Red should be its strongest of the
season against Michigan.
And if Cornell turns up some rugged opposition, it's nothing to
what Purdue should present two weeks hence. Ohio State, last foe
on Michigan's 1952 schedule, is another toughie. Oosterbaan, a bit
despondent over Saturday's upset, viewed the future philosophically
yesterday. "We're going to do the best we can from here on," he de-
If that "best" is enough to beat Cornell, Purdue, and the
Buckeyes, the Wolverines can do no worse than tie for the Big Ten
Championship with a 5-1 record. Here are the remaining sched-
ules of the four top Conference teams (league record in paren-

literally ran the pants off the

Eaddy is sided by fiery Ray Pa-

campaign he notched 147.

Why Quit Yet? . ..
'THERE IS NOTHING to gain by giving up hope for an undisputed
title and/or a Rose Bowl trip yet either. For an undisputed title
Michigan needs victories over Purdue and OSU, plus another defeat
each for Wisconsin, Minnesota, and the Boilermakers.
For the Pasadena junket, twd Michigan victories plus another
loss to Wisconsin would do the trick, because, should the Wolverines
tie Purdue for the title, the Maize and Blue probably could bank on
Rose Bowl nomination for winning the contest between the two co-
champions. The same would hold for a tie with Minnesota.
Michigan's chances now may appear poor, but they're cer-
tainly no worse than at the same stage two years back. Then an-
other Oosterbaan team journeyed to Columbus on the last day
of the season needing not only a win over the favored Buckeyes,
but also a Northwestern upset of Illinois for the championship
and Rose Bowl trip. Both games ended in favor of the Wolverines.
Weather, that great equalizer, can play an important part in Big
Ten affairs, especially late in the season. For instance, Purdue and
Wisconsin both play Minnesota in Minneapolis, where snow is likely
any time after Columbus Day. Snow and damp weather made the
difference between Michigan and OSU and Northwestern and Illinois
two years ago.
Whatever the other foes do, Michigan fans will hAve an oppor-
tunity to see first hand which way the Wolverines go from here. They
take two big strides the next two weekends in the Stadium.

GRIDIRON PROGRESS REPORT:
Frosh Team Rounds into Shape Under Coach Weber
By PAUL GREENBERG
After the high-flying Illini dam-
pened Michigan's hopes for a trip
to Pasadena last Saturday, a lot
of observers have started to look
to next year.
Important in the forecast for
1953 are the freshman gridders
who have been toiling daily under
the guidance of Coach Wally Web-
er and his staff.
Many of the freshman have
worked out with the varsity and
have continued to flash impres-
sive form before observers and
it seems as if the rookie crop
of gridders is a good one.
A lot of top-flight material has
turned up in the quarterback and
the end position-ready to step
into supporting roles on the var-
sity next fall. At quarterback,
Louis Baldacci from Akron, Ohio
has drawn a lot of attention.
BALDACCI, a rugged 195 pound-
er can do just al~out anything
with a football and do it well. Also
impressive in the play-calling role
have been Fred Driver from Niagra
Falls, New York, and Gordon
Barnes from Owosso.
Barnes also looks like a fine
s safety man and pass defender.
At end, the team is well stocked
with fine performers in John
Kuchka from Berwick, Pennsyl-
vania, Phil Endres from Grand
Rapids, and Gerr; Williams and
Lee Jones from Flint.
At the all-important single wing
tailback slot, Tom Hendricks from
Detroit, George McKinley from
Norwalk, Ohio and Charles Hen-
wood from Wayne are leading the
down the first string wingback
spot on the Wolverine varsity, some
of his contemporaries in the class
of '56 are going to give him a rough
battle for his position next year.
Jack Wheeler from Ypsilanti,
George Corey from Baden, Penn-
sylvania, Dick Basich from Delta,
Ohio and Bob Ames from Al-
gonac all have shown class op-
erating from right halfback.
The fullback problem which
lately has given Coach Ben Oost-
erbaan and his backfield mentor
George Ciethaml a great big
headache will get a big lift from
the freshmen.' Although the en-
tire trio of Dick Balzhizer, Bob
Hurley and Fred Baer returns,
they'll really have to hustle to
keep Earl Johnson of Muskegon
Heights, Bob Hitchmough of Pet-
oskey and Sal Dimucci of Chicago
on the bench.
JOHNSON, older and heavier
brother of Tom, first-string tackle
for Michigan in 1950 and 1951.
along with DiMucci has seen a lot
of action at line backer. That pair
and John Peckham from Sioux
Falls, South Dakota have proved
rugged operatives on defense.
John Morrow, a native Ann
Arborite leads the tackle crop
and he along with Charles
Krahnke from Charlevois, Ches-
ter Kasper from Oak Park, Illi-
nois and Dave Shultz from
Rockford, Michigan look like
they have the class and size
needed to play against Western
Guard, a position that will be
heavily hit by graduation, has
some good talent among the fresh-
men including Wil Brown and
Jim McCarthy from Toledo, Jim
Fox from Saginaw and Bob Mar-
ion, a Muskegon Heights product.
With Dick O'Shaughnessy re-
turning in 1953, line coach Jack
Blott doesn't have to worry about
looking for a new pivotman, but
Harry Kirby from Dayton, Ohio
will give him some depth.
